    Not really sure what/why you went backwards with WA?? We do recommend the latest n greatest WA version. As far as the installer, no not yet, was not home most of the weekend.

    Well for some reason yet to be determined, when I have the most current WA installed W/ DFX5.0.3 and then the 5.1 patch my system runs slow (among other things strange). I get a 3-4 second lag when I access any button in the skin. So I am back tracking trying to find what is not playing nice.

    For now I have RR 4-01-11 running DFX5.0.3. All is well (no lag time) except, I can't get the 5.1 patch to install. The installer can't find my RideRunner installed file folder.

    Make a copy of your RR folder, rename the DFX5 folder to something else, then install 5.1 straight up w/o patching and see if you get the same problem.

    When I make the copy off my RR folder, is this just as a backup? And by renaming my installed DFX-5.0.3, is this a backup as well? Kinda sounds redundant.

    I'm having an interesting issue. I have the May release of RR and the 5.1 patch for DFX5. all on windows home edition. I'm using MS Media player for my music source (as winamp any version keeps crashing on me for some reason that I can't resolve). player works fine for music, and my visteon HD player also works fine until I hibernate. If I go into hybernation with the HD radio playing, when the PC recovers from hibernation, the HD radio skin will list the last active music playlist in the radio preset box, and won't play any radio at all. I actually have to navigate out of HD radio to music, then back to HD radio, to get it to play and list presets correctly. it does this now consistently everytime. It did not do this prior to 5.1, so I'm not sure what the root cause of fix is. Any ideas what to check?

    Update: I resolved my issue be reactivating Resume from Hibernation in the RRconfig utility.

    Yes, for backup. This way you have 2 chances to get back to where you were. I like redundancy, especially when it's easy.

    No, but your description of your issue is not very detailed. Because sometimes users mixup terms it is hard to give advise for a solution, not knowing exactly what the user is asking about. Try telling how you are navigating to the screen in question and then hopefully someone can help with a answer.

    I installed the Internet Radio update and was playing with it, and one of the buttons tries to load a skin that isn't there, Internet_Radio_Loadplaylist.skin. I was trying to pull up the list for my state, which I assume this skin lets you do.

    I dl'ed again and it's still not there, so is that part not completed yet?

    Cheers!

    Another question: Is there a way to have RR/DFX open on a different skin other than the first menu skin? Most of the time I'm in an iGuidance screen (the exact skin name escapes me but I can get the name) so I'd like to have DFX start to that screen. Just need to know where to specify if it's possible.

    If it's not possible, then consider this a feature request. Thanks!
